Package: general
Severity: minor

After installation the Network-Manager-Applet 0.8.1 shows the symbol
"disconnected", but the internet connection is working.
No connection is listed at "cable networks".

The other network-applet that one can add to the panel shows the correct
connection status (online) and the connection name eth0.

I don't know.

See </usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian> for a full
explanation of the interaction between /etc/network/interfaces and
Network Manager.
